. >> that was republican senator mike crappo questioning kathleen sebelius just a few moments ago. sebelius is testifying in front of a senate committee about the rollout. she's also been answering questions about the law and whether the law is working. we continue to monitor that on the hill. meanwhile as republican lawmakers continue their angst over obama care, there's a new talking point. politico is reporting that the obama administration has ordered a study to determine whether the affordable care act will increase the number of people enrolled in the food stamps program since it increases the number of people eligible for medicaid. it's too soon to tell, but this much we do know to be true. right now 47 million americans are making ends meet with fewer food stamp dollars. the automatic cuts that kicked in nearly a week ago are forcing more recipients to turn to resources like food pan trees. rebecca is the executive director of florida association of food banks. florida is among two dozen states where at least 15% of the population relies on food stamps. how much of an uptick has there been at foo

picture of a keg. >> that was republican congressman grilling kathleen sebelius this week. he was referring to an ad campaign. this features a college student doing a keg stand captioned don't tap into that beer money to cover your medical bills. joining me is adam fox, director of the strategic management for the colorado consumer health initiative. adam, it's good to have you here. what was your reaction when that happened on capitol hill? when the congressman was trying to get kathleen sebelius to either give her approval or disapproval of this style of ad? >> well, you know, i don't think -- it really doesn't have anything to do with the secretary, because it wasn't coming from colorado's state-based marketplace much less the federal marketplace. so she really had no idea that this was going to be happening. this was really something that we were doing to try to raise awareness among young adults. >> all right. so connect for health colorado says 3,164 people enrolled as of october 29th. explain to us the campaign and the minds behind this. obviously you look like a young

, senators got their chance to question health and human services secretary kathleen sebelius. meanwhile, the president flew to texas where he called out the state's lawmakers for not taking full advantage of the affordable care act. >> one of the things that sometimes gets me a little trust rated although i understand it because i'm in politics is folks who are complaining about how the website's not working and why isn't obama fixing this and all of these people are uninsured and let, they're leaving a million people right now without health insurance that they could immediately fix. there's not a lot of logic. >> republican congressman from texas, michael burgess sits on the house energy and commerce committee. congressman, good to see you. >> good morning, craig. >> while they may not all live in your district, what do you say to the president's criticism that by not opting to expand medicaid, at least, not opting to expand medicaid 1 million people who could have insurance in texas, do not. >> let's get a couple of things out there first. medicaid will continue to exist in texas as

. they tell kathleen sebelius that. >> for the democratic congressional committee, yes, they do want to be in front of those people. it is noticed that they aren't giving to the congressional committee. the president, in fact, is the only draw here. >> a quick break. when we come back, what should president obama be thankful for at this thanksgiving? we're going to ask the brain trust right after this. populatin is going to grow by over 90 million people, and almost all that growth is going to be in cities. what's the healthiest and best way for them to grow so that they really become cauldrons of prosperity and cities of opportunity? what we have found is that if that family is moved into safe, clean affordable housing, places that have access to great school systems, access to jobs and multiple transportation modes then the neighborhood begins to thrive and then really really take off. the oxygen of community redevelopment is financing. and all this rebuilding that happened could not have happened without organizations like citi. citi has formed a partnership with our company so th
